Silver Star poster

Silver Star poster

The luxury all-sleeper Silver Star service, introduced in 1971, revolutionised overnight travel on the North Island main trunk. The service was ultimately undermined, though, by competition from the National Airways Corporation's Boeing 737 jets, and it closed in 1979. This poster was issued in 1974, four years after New Zealand Railways adopted its distinctive new red, white and black logo, designed by Barry Ellis.
